43EEFA ?

Post by hungerford » November 5th, 2014, 10:11 pm

had 43EEFA in stevenage area 17:30 - 17:45 at about 2500ft any ideas, could this be a new code for G-UMMI/G-BFIB or maybe even G-TDSA/G-BVJT/G-UKAL?

Yes, it's G-UUMI's latest hex code.

In the operator's (or MoD's) attempts to obfuscate its identity, they blithely ignore the fact that every time they change the hex code, the aircraft carries on using the same unique callsign and is therefore easily identifiable.

Similarly, sister ship G-BFIB started using 43EEE6 at the beginning of October.
